Seserahan

Seserahan is a Javanese tradition during a marriage ceremony, where the bride & groom's family exchange gifts as a warm gesture to express their joy of uniting the two families. Here you can see the groom (at the front) wearing Javanese traditional outfit, guided by his parents to walk toward the ceremony area. His family brought baskets filled with gifts for the bride. In the old days, the bride didn't know what to expect in those boxes of presents. Some would find things that they're not fond of. But now it's common for the bride to choose the gifts she likes, so that nothing will be left unused. The gifts are mostly clothings, batik, lingerie, perfume, shoes, bags or may also be fruits and food.
